Having issues with air bags not filling all the way up consistently. Sometimes they even go down while we're driving. This is an intermittent problem. Any ideas or past experiences you can share would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure where to take something like this issue to be looked at, maybe Camping World?

The worst thing about this coach is trying to find quality service in the SE. I travel Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and N Florida if anyone knows a place to get good service. I usually end up doing it myself. This time I don't know what to do.

I am curious why you say that, Bob. We have had our annual service there (Tampa Coach Care)for 3 yrs, as well as a few other issues at the same time. We have been extremely pleased at their professionalism, excellent communication, and timeliness. Cost was a bit high, but less than Lazy Days or some other places we checked, and worth it for the confidence we've developed in them.

2race- sounds like the air control valve(s). I'm not sure it there is one or two per axle, but I can't see how the air bag itself would make an intermittent problem. The valve has an adjustable connecting rod to establish ride height. If the connection isn't tight that would produce wierd reactions.
